Alphacool HardTube Fittings and Tubing
Rigid tubing used to be a thing exclusive to extreme modders, being exceptionally difficult to produce, fit and disassemble. Recently several companies have came to market with their own Rigid Tubing and fittings, taking away a lot of the time and effort required to accomplish this feat of PC plumbing excellence.
Now Alpacool are being added to the list of premium watercooling companies who supply this kind of gear. Alphacool have not just arrived to the party, but have came in full force offering something unique, they are offering metal tubing which are usable with their fittings unlike other companies which just offer acrylic or plexi tubing.
As is usual with these fittings they require the use of specialized fittings, to ensure that if used properly your system will be leak free and easy to use.
"HT (HardTube) Fitting and tubing system has been under development for many months. The HT fitting use a triple lock system comprising of two o-rings and a flat gasket to evenly secure the HT tube in place.
The HT Fittings also use a standard G1/4 thread so they can be used with any inner thread fittings to add easier routing options. Above you can see the HT fittings combined with a standard Alphacool 90° inner thread fitting. The HT fittings range is also compatible with any 13mm OD acrylic tubes."
Currently these product are available in a Clear Plexi (only tubing), Chrome and Deep Black colour option, with tubing available in lengths of 20cm or 40cm. More sizes and colour options will be made available in the future.
At present these parts are only available at Aquatuning, but further retail availability will come in the following weeks.
